One month before his 37th birthday, journalist Klaas Boomsma concludes in an addiction clinic in South Africa that his life has failed. One day later he begins running. At MPI campfire he tells the story of his addiction to alcohol and cocaine, and what he has done to take his life back and how he built a healthy life in balance. Boomsma has been clean, married and father of a daughter for almost six years now. After his first run over the beach near Cape Town, he has not stopped running. Klaas started running as a medicine against daring and flight behaviour, but now it’s a passionate and fantastic way of life. He wrote the book “Run for your life” (only available in Dutch). Klaas Boomsma (1974) is editor-in-chief of the running magazine Losse Veter and writes columns for menshealth.nl.
